It seems as though Cream Puff was built pre-fuse era. Could some please post a good picture and if you have knowledge of the wire gauge on the pos wire to the bow thruster motor, that would be helpful also. Many thanks!







With best regards,

Good evening,



originally, there was no fuse protecting the jack motor. In case of a rope caught in the bowthruster foot, the motor was unable to lift the unit all the way up and this caused the motor to fail. That's why AMEL installed (maybe around 2004) a 10A fuse on the positive wire feeding the jack's motor.

For those who haven't such a fuse on their bowthruster lifting motor, I would highly recommend to install one (a car-type flat one or a glass tube one) on the positive wire.



Olivier.

Good morning Eric,

Glad my pictures are useful!

To answer: “What causes the fuse to blow”.
In “my” case, one of the sensors stop working, I was bringing up the bow thruster, it did not stop (I am guessing: when it reach the top continue to push, requesting additional amp to the circuit) then thankfully the fuse blow up preventing more damages.

I have a 10 amp fuse, but I think someone mentioned putting a 5 amp would be enough and may be safer.

Derick,Looking at Alexandres
photo of his control box, the fuse appears to be inserted
into the circuit board.It is interesting that
his boat is a lower hull number and yours is a higher hull
number than mine.There is a space where
a fuse could go but inmy case no fuse. What causes the fuse to
blow?Fair

in my Bow thruster control box Eric, Having blown that fuse once
already, I think it is a good idea to have one. I am not
on the boat at present, so I cannot send a more detailed
picture of how it is connected. Perhaps someone else can
do that.
